On September 16, 1902, Pichat finished 3rd in the light car category during the first edition of the Mont Ventoux Hill Climb organized by the Automobile Club d’Avignon. He covered the 21 km distance n 1 hour, 18 minutes and 25 seconds. On an identical model, Maréchal had won second place in the consumption competition organized by Autocyclophile Lyonnais two months earlier.
